In politics and sociology, divide and rule is gaining and maintaining power by breaking up larger concentrations of power into chunks that individually have less power than the one implementing the strategy. Historically this strategy was used in many different ways by empires seeking to expand their territories.
The concept is also mentioned as a strategy for market action in economics to get the most out of the players in a competitive market.
